Studying: Apprenticeship in Business Administration while working at the Whittington Hospital

Duncan Matthews was named the ‘Apprentice of the Year’ at the Health Education North Central and East London (HENCEL) quality awards in 2014.

Duncan said: “I am very proud to have received this award. I did not gel with education at school and left with 3 GCSEs, but taking an apprenticeship has changed everything. Now I am working in the NHS, earning and learning and have experience to put on my CV such as project management and public speaking. I am now a massive advocate for apprenticeships and work based learning.

"My ambition in the future is to continue working for the NHS and to possibly progress into legal services.”
